  • Covering and uncovering data

The Cover surface tool is a building block. Building blocks in Presenter improve interaction. Add them to your Presenter file, encourage pupils to engage and think along. The Cover surface is a tool to cover or uncover data. 

Press the cursor button in the toolbar to control the tool. The tool consists of eight triangles, visible along the edges of the surface. Drag a triangle to open or close the surface. The triangles at the top and bottom function as roller blinds. The triangles on the left and right function as curtains. With the triangles in the corners of the tool, you can use both the roller blind and the curtain.

Activate the select button and click on the surface. Click on the lock icon that will appear above the surface and then use the selection dots to adjust the curtain. Use the cursor to open or close the surface.
